I thought FF7 was the best RPG

Person likes/says 7 is best.
People rush to say 6 is better for retro-cred & that 7 is the most overrated.
People casually brag about 9 being best not to seem as mainstream as 6'ers.
8 gets overlooked & everyone mocks 13.
10/12 rarely brought up, but always in favour, but never in the "best" running.
With a smaller group swearing by Tactics/KH/VStory

Honourable mentions to people who say all FinFan are trash & that
BOF3/Suik2/SO2/Xeno/L:SSS are the best ever.

Nods to people who bring up Dragoon or Legaia.

Cold shoulder to people who start to bring up every other SNES RPG.


This is exactly how every one of these topics play out...

... and while all this is happening, no one's opinion is respected in the slightest.

At this point, we should be beyond the arguing over that generation. That really was the golden age of JRPGs. FFs and Non FFs alike. In the next gen, we should be so lucky to compare a great FF with a great Suikoden/Xeno/etc. Or compare two great FFs.

Some of you act like you're the keepers of some great universal truth.

There is no universal truth when it comes to game preferences. I like FF VII the best out of the entire series, and Super Mario RPG is my favorite RPG.

It doesn't make me right or wrong, and none of you have the "correct" answer either, because it doesn't exist.

If we're talking best RPG of all time, I'd personally say either Chrono Trigger, Dragon Quest 8, or Final Fantasy 9. Ni No Kuni is also shaping up to be an incredibly solid title. There's still a huge amount of great RPGs however. Such as...

Grandia
Earthbound (and Mother 3)
Final Fantasy 4, 6, 7, 10
Kingdom Hearts 1+2
Legend of Dragoon
Suikoden 1+2
Persona 3

Of course, this is just off the top of my head. There's still some other PS3 RPGs I'd like to try, like the Atelier and Tales series.

You should try some of the older ones, I felt the characterization was better in them. Especially 4/6.

Totally right.

Super Mario RPG is awesome. The very best of the Mario RPG series. (If you include Paper Mario games that is. Thousand Year Door is a close 2nd.)

Secret of Mana was also awesome. Especially if you had 3 players, like we did as kids.

For me the best is IV. Epic soundtrack, good plot, lots of drama and good difficulty.

And for best JRPG..... Xenoblade Chronicles!


It wouldn't be a RPG topic without the regionally challenged infesting it.

As for the topic, good for you TC.
